Doyin Okupe faults Presidency’s indifference to Biafra’s sit-at-home order


Former Senior Spe­cial Assistant on Public Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jon­athan, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has decried the silence of the Presidency on the success of the May 20 sit-at-home order by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

Okupe said that the Presidency should be worried that IPOB lead­er, Nnamdi Kanu, came from nowhere, gave an order and it was com­plied with across the South East.

In a statement he signed, Okupe wondered why the Presidency pre­tended as if nothing hap­pened during the recent sit-at-home protest by the IPOB.

The statement read in part. “A young man, from virtually nowhere, issues a decree for a sec­tion of the country to stay at home. Surprising­ly, there was maximum compliance even beyond his immediate natural constituency.

“Yet, the next day, the whole country pretends nothing has happened or at best , as if, it was an isolated event some­where in Southern Cam­eroon.

“About the same time, there was and still is con­flagration, confrontation and war-like proclama­tions from major sec­tions of the country on the persistent and per­plexing call for restruc­turing of the federation,”

He also lamented that “when Fulani herds­men go on rampage”, the South is “rambunctious” but there is dead silence in the North.
